So you assume that translators are following the list? I currently do
but recently I unsubscribed more than ten lists and sometime I will do
so for Subversions one as well.

There are only few releases of Subversion per year so please consider
contacting contributors if the translation is not up-to-date.

Please try to fix this in all PO files as well. Just search for this
string and adapt it. Otherwise 10 or more people have to do it
individually and this requires a much higher work than doing it once for
(In this rare case also the translation in the msgstr entry should be
updated (removing a space requires no knowledge of it) but normally it
is sufficient to adapt msgid entries for English typo fixes ...)

Not unfuzzying is also the reason that often previously up-to-date
translations are incomplete in a release. It's easy to avoid ...
